No water restrictions planned in Denver despite below average snowpack

Despite below average snowpack in the Denver Water collection basin, the utility is not implementing additional water restrictions.DENVER — During the drought of 2002, which really set the bar for just how low the state water supply can get, Denver Water introduced their first ever set of water restrictions.

Despite below average snowpack in the Denver Water collection basin, the utility is not implementing additional water restrictions.

DENVER — During the drought of 2002, which really set the bar for just how low the state water supply can get, Denver Water introduced their first ever set of water restrictions. They required that their customers only water three times a week or less, and only water during the cooler hours between 6 p.m. and 10 a.m.

After that, their climate forecasters realized that similar drought levels in the future were going to be a rule and not an exception.

"That really inspired Denver Water and later many other utilities to lock in those restrictions from 2002, and make them annual summer rules," said Todd Hartman, a spokesperson for Denver Water.

He said those Summer Watering Rules now apply every year between May 1 and October 1.

91% of Colorado is currently in drought conditions, and the Colorado River system is in dire shape, especially at Lake Powell, where storage elevation is at its lowest elevation since the 1960s.

But most of the water used by Denver Water customers comes from snowpack collected in a couple of basins that didn't have as bad of a winter. The Upper South Platte headwaters peaked at 29% below average, and the Upper Colorado headwaters peaked at 14% below average.

Overall, the two areas reached their peak levels on April 26 which is about average, but Denver Water did say the snow telemetry sites above Lake Dillon may not have peaked yet. Even with a very warm and sunny Saturday, there is a chance they will peak on Sunday or Monday if this next storm system can bring in 6 inches of snow or more.

Either way, those sites above Lake Dillon will still peak at below average levels.

Hartman said that's not a great season, but its not awful either. He said they got just enough snow to avoid implementing additional restrictions.

“That’s always on a continuum," he said. "Our water planning group is always watching the situation, so things could change, but right now we feel like we could get through the irrigation season with our standard rules in place.”

Denver Water estimates that half of the water used by their 1.5 million customers gets sprayed onto the yards. The average lawn only requires a half inch of water twice per week.

So that means when the Denver area gets an inch of rain, like it did in the first four days of May, sprinklers systems should be turned off for seven days because an inch of rain equals two half-inch waterings.

“The less water we use in this part of the season, the more water that will be available later on in the summer when it really will be hot and people will want to water in some cases three days a week,” said Hartman. "And half the water we use comes from the Western Slope, so water conservation in Denver has a huge impact over there."

Many other cities and utilities in Colorado also have summer watering rules in place, but so far there are no reports of any additional restrictions beyond those standard rules.

Seven years after selling DTC hotel, company says it’s still owed $11.5M

Seven years ago, a newly formed hotel investment company in Denver proudly touted its purchase of a Best Western Plus in the Denver Tech Center for $15 million.“The property has all of the characteristics we are looking for in an acquisition — strong current yield, excellent location, superior branding and a variety of healthy demand generators,” Phillip Hutchins, co-founder of the company Rockies Lodging Capital, said in a news release.But on April 28, Hutchins, fellow co-founder Stephen Mills and RLC were su...

Seven years ago, a newly formed hotel investment company in Denver proudly touted its purchase of a Best Western Plus in the Denver Tech Center for $15 million.

“The property has all of the characteristics we are looking for in an acquisition — strong current yield, excellent location, superior branding and a variety of healthy demand generators,” Phillip Hutchins, co-founder of the company Rockies Lodging Capital, said in a news release.

But on April 28, Hutchins, fellow co-founder Stephen Mills and RLC were sued in Arapahoe County District Court by DTC Hotel LLC, which claims it hasn’t been paid about $11.5 million that it is still owed from the sale of the 149-room Best Western at 9231 E. Arapahoe Road.

According to DTC Hotel, which is based in Greenwood Village, RLC signed a promissory note for $11.5 million and took out a $200,000 loan for repairs at the hotel in April 2015. DTC says the firm owes it $11.3 million from the promissory note and the full $200,000 from the loan, along with interest, late fees and attorney fees.

“The pandemic had a large negative impact on our hotel property operations, with losses approaching $2 million over the last couple of years, resulting in the default,” Mills said in an email. “We are actively working with our lender towards a resolution which includes a payoff of their loan against the property.”

“We expect to close on the recapitalization of the property within the next 60 days, resulting in a dismissal of the (lawsuit) filing upon loan payoff,” Mills added.

In its lawsuit, DTC Hotel said it has begun foreclosing on the property. The company is concerned that RTC can’t pay for maintenance, which could lead to structural damage. In February, RTC couldn’t pay the $226,622 it owes in real estate taxes, according to the lawsuit.

As a result, DTC asked an Arapahoe County judge to appoint a receiver to oversee daily operations at the hotel and ensure its bills are being paid. District Court Judge Frederick Martinez agreed and appointed Colorado Hospitality Services, a Denver company.

RLC owns five other Colorado hotels — two in Fort Collins and one each in Lakewood, Lone Tree and Steamboat Springs — according to its website.

DTC is represented by attorney Neal Dunning with the firm Brown Dunning Walker Fein.

Sorry, we're having issues playing this video.In the meantime, try watching one of the videos below.

PARKER, Colo. — A Parker man who has health insurance was shocked recently when he opened a bill a received from his doctor for a telehealth consultation.

Dustin Stewart had scheduled an in-person doctor's appointment to meet his new primary care physician and review his medical history. Just before the appointment, Stewart was exposed to COVID-19, so he called the office to reschedule.

Stewart said when he called to make a new appointment, the office offered a telehealth visit for the original day and time.

"I said, that's fine. As long as it doesn't change the structure of how I’m billed. My insurance is a copay. And they said 'nope, you should be just fine,'" Stewart remembered.

Stewart said his copay is normally $20. However, after his telehealth visit, he was charged more than $300.

“I laughed because I thought, 'oh, well, there must be a mistake,'" said Stewart. “My doctor is a great doctor, but that would equate to around $600 the worth of a telephone call.”

He said he called his insurance company, doctor's office, and the billing department of the office. He was told the bill was reviewed, and that it was correct. Stewart does not understand how that is possible.

“I don't think there was a proper review of how did the bill get to be this number on either my care provider side or the billing department side," Stewart said.

Stewart is paying off the bill using a payment plan but is worried this situation is not unique to his personal experience.

“I can only imagine that I must be a fraction of the population this has happened to, and I know that there are other people in tough circumstances that this could majorly affect their lives," said Stewart.

According to the National Telehealth Policy Resource Center, in Colorado, an insurance provider is not required to pay for consultation via telehealth. However, “a carrier shall not restrict or deny coverage solely because the service is provided through telehealth,” the policy states.

Those with UCHealth said they are not affiliated with the bill, and said the bill is from CU Medicine.

CU Medicine sent the following statement:

The UCHealth Primary Care Lone Tree facility is owned and operated by University of Colorado Hospital, which is part of UCHealth. This facility is classified as a hospital outpatient department and patient visits must be billed as outpatient hospital visits, whether the visit is conducted in-person or via telehealth. Health insurance benefit structures often vary by service and/or location.We are unable to address any patient-specific health or benefit information because it would be a violation of privacy rights protected by HIPAA.Given that health insurance benefit structures can vary by service, location, and often whether a patient is seen in-person or via telehealth, we’re not able to provide any further statements at this time.

Denver data company stops selling information on visits to abortion clinics

A Denver-based data broker said Tuesday it will stop selling information on visits to abortion clinics, including Planned Parenthood facilities, following a report from Vice about how easy it was to access the information and concerns about how it may be used.

The role that data collection plays in abortion rights is drawing more scrutiny after a U.S. Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortions nationwide, leaked and was reported by Politico earlier this week.

There is a concern that information could be used by “anti-abortion vigilantes” to harass or target people seeking and providing abortions. The data gathered by the company, SafeGraph, showed where people traveled to a clinic based on their census block, reported Vice.

Colorado abortion providers expect more people to travel to the state for abortions if Roe v. Wade is officially overturned as other states are poised to ban the procedure outright. Colorado was one of the first states to loosen restrictions on legal abortions and now affirms the right to the procedure in state law.

SafeGraph’s data, which it says is aggregated and anonymized, includes information on where businesses are located, when they’re open, what businesses are nearby, the physical shape of a building and how people interact with place, according to a statement by the company.

The data tries to answer “how often people visit, how long they stay, where they came from, where else they go, and more,” according to the company’s website.

A representative with SafeGraph declined to comment for this story and instead pointed to the statement on the company’s website, which said it is removing “patterns data” for locations classified as family planning centers “to curtail any potential misuse” of the information. It will still provide location and operating hour information for the centers, such as Planned Parenthood.

“We don’t have any indication that this data has ever been used for bad purposes,” the company said in a statement. “We have had many academics that have used this type of data for really good purposes. Taking away this data will impact many academics that want to study this topic (like understanding the impact of legislation on family planning visits).”

DENVER (CBS4) – Celebrate Colorado starts Friday, May 6! It’s a three-day weekend of free and discounted events across the state.

There are more than 200 events planned to showcase Colorado’s arts, culture and businesses in all parts of the state.

The Celebrate Colorado weekend is also meant to thank Coloradans for their resiliency during the pandemic.

“We wanted to make sure that we were getting this out to all four corners of the state and making sure that all cities, counties and communities can participate,” said Danielle Oliveto, Deputy Chief of Staff for the governor’s office. “You may be here in Denver and thinking, ‘I want to go down to Colorado Springs for the weekend,’ or you know, ‘I might wanna go to Lamar.’ They’re doing a kickoff down in Lamar. We’ve got main streets across the whole state. … Maybe you are thinking you want to get somewhere different and see what Colorado has to offer.”

All nine of History Colorado’s community museums will be free for the weekend.

The History Colorado Center on Broadway in Denver will also be hosting an AAPI wellness day Saturday for a fee, with acupuncture, reiki healing and sound baths.

There will be a food truck fest at the Pueblo fairgrounds, the Aurora Reservoir will be free for the weekend and all the Denver recreation centers will be open free to Coloradans as well.

Here’s a sampling of some of the other ways to celebrate Colorado:

Museums: Museo de las Americas – Denver Center For Colorado Women’s History – Denver Museum of Art – Fort Collins History Colorado – Denver Denver Art Museum Golda Meir House Museum Colorado Governor’s Art Show – Loveland Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising at Colorado State University – Fort Collins Gregory Allicar Museum of Art – Fort Collins Aurora History Museum Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum El Pueblo History Museum – Pueblo

Performances: Harmony: A Colorado Chorale – Denver Estes Park Rotary Duck Festival

Freebies: Aurora Libraries – Saturday is Free Comic Book Day Denver Recreation Centers Aurora Reservoir AFA Spring Volksmarch Hikes

Discounted Admissions Pikes Peak Space Foundation Discovery Center – Colorado Springs Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

See a full list of things to do and explore the map at celebrate.colorado.gov.

“You’re going to see a really cool interactive Google Map, and you can scroll into any part of the state in your neighborhood to see what events are happening,” said Oliveto. “So you scroll in Palisade, you might see a winery that’s doing a discount for the weekend, in Fort Collins you might see the trail gardens at CSU or even the governor’s art show in Loveland, so there really is something for everyone indoors and outdoors.”
